Singer Armaan Malik, who has sung songs like Tumhe apna banane ki from Hate Story 3, Main hoon hero tera from Hero and Naina from Khoobsurat, credits his success to superstar Salman Khan.
Armaan was launched by Salman in 2014 as he sang the title track of Jai Ho.
Does Armaan credit Salman Khan for his career in Bollywood?
"100 percent. I think if it was not him, then my talent would not have been recognised. His support was a really big thing and a boost for me as well. I underwent a big personality change in the whole process because he also focusses on other things apart from work," Armaan told IANS.
"I was one of those whom he was mentoring along with Sooraj Pancholi and Athiya Shetty. He also focuses on how you look, dance and present yourself. I think that is really important. He has been in the industry for a long time and knows what works. What's important to do and what's not," added Armaan.
Armaan is the son of musician Dabboo Malik and nephew of Anu Malik.
Armaan also said that Salman's "push and dedication" helped him "grow as person."
"This was all apart from the singing aspect that really helped me to grow as a person and I had joined dance classes and worked out. I wouldn't have done that otherwise. This is because of his dedication for showing me the right way," added Armaan.
